Black Film Appreciation

February 1, 2022, 9:00 am to February 28, 2022, 8:00 pm

In honor of Black History month, check out a movie featuring black characters or produced by black creators!

We're featuring two in particular: 

  • Pixar’s Soul (rated PG) Joe Gardner is an average guy teaching music in middle school whose real dream is to be a jazz musician. When he finally earns the chance to perform onstage, he has an accident that leaves him in a near-death state. As his soul is scheduled to proceed to the afterlife, he discovers that his body is still not dead. He escapes to a before-life place where he tries to negotiate a deal so he could return to Earth—before it's too late.

  • Respect (rated PG-13) Following the rise of Aretha Franklin's career from a young child singing in her father's church's choir to her international superstardom, "Respect" is the remarkable true story of the music icon's journey to find her voice and become the Queen of Soul.

We'll have multiple copies of these, along with some discussion questions you can use to talk about these films as a family. 

We'll have several other titles available, along with a Bingo sheet you can use to track how many you can watch during the month.


So stop by the library in February, grab some popcorn and a movie or two, and start filling out that bingo sheet!
